Workout Recap - Week of March 29, 2020

As I've said a few times in the past, there's something meditative about my pass/fail workouts. Maybe frustrations with certain matters as a result of the current pandemic is part of why I keep favoring them over timed workouts, but I will make up for this week's lack of a challenge workout with bookend challenges next week.

Sunday

Type: Pass/Fail

One-arm Pull Up Negatives - 3 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Fingertip Diamond Push Ups - 3 sets of 6 (pass)

Bonus: none

A rehash of what I did to open last week. Nothing too special, just getting more comfortable with this workload before trying to go further with them.

Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Lunges

11/8/5 Pull Ups

21/15/9 Side Lunges

11/8/5 Handstand Push Ups

21/15/9 Sit Ups

Time = 10:00

Bonus: 2 sets of 10 bridges

Still playing around with this to find a specific routine that really sings to me. I liked working in pull ups for it, but I think it could use some tweaking to increase the difficulty.

Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

3-limb Bridges - 2 sets of 2, each combination (pass)

Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

L-Hang - 2 sets of 28 breath isometric hold (pass)

Bonus: 15 breath isometric towel dead hang

Going slightly further with my uneven handstand push ups and L-hangs. I felt good with them, so a new baseline is set.

Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

One-arm Pull Up Negatives - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

3-limb Bridges - 1 set of 3, each combination (pass)

Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

Bonus: none

This was an especially frustrating day, so I wanted something simple and straightforward where I could just clear my mind and slide through it.

Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

One-arm Pull Up Negatives - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Fingertip Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

3-limb Bridges - 2 sets of 2, each combination (pass)

Bonus: 8 bridge kips, 10 breath isometric free headstand

A fairly standard workout, by my current standards. I used my extra energy at the end to do some balance work in anticipation of eventually doing free handstand push ups.
